According to the latest rumors, it appears that the iPhone 14 Pro models will not have Face ID under the display as previously stated.
Display industry consultant Ross Young claimed earlier today that iPhone 14 Pro models will have both hole-punch and pill-shaped cutouts near the top of the display. Young believes the hole will house the Face ID dot projector, while the pill-shaped cutout will allegedly house at a minimum the front camera and an infrared camera for Face ID.
Young has since claimed in a follow-up tweet that the infrared camera will not be moved under the display until 2023 or 2024, implying that Face ID will not be fully under the display until the iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 16 Pro.
It’s worth noting that long-time analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Face ID would not be moved beneath the display until 2023.
While the two-hole design for iPhone 14 Pro models will not provide a completely seamless viewing experience, it is a step in the right direction. And if Young and Kuo are correct, we might see an all-screen design next year.
